About Us

Running club with memberships open to anyone. Organises over 90 races in the ACT region each year, including special annual events, such as the YMCA Women and Girls' Fun Run and the YMCA Canberra Half Marathon. In addition to our website we are also on Facebook.

Events cater for runners of all ages and abilities. Women's running is particularly supported through the monthly Women and Girls' Jogalong, which also has a Minijog for primary school age children. Free childcare is provided.

The Club also conducts training groups, including the TTS group which meets all year, and groups targetted to special events such as the Canberra Times Fun Run.

The Thredbo Fun and Fitness Week is an annual week of family sporting (and some non-sports) activities held at Thredbo each January, with participants from all over Australia. Also see the Facebook page.

Annual membership is available for individuals and families, and provides free entry to all Club races and discounts for entry to special events.
